Get Prepared for Organic September
Once again, we’re offering FREE point of sale packs to retailers, farm shops, farm stands and health stores this Organic September. The packs include:
- 50 packs of wildflower seeds to hand out to customers on Organic September Saturday
- Staff pick cards
- Shelf strips
- Social media assets to share on your channels
- Web banners
As sampling probably won’t be on the cards this Organic September Saturday (5th September), we’ve teamed-up with the Organic Trade Board to supply shops with FREE wildflower seeds to reinforce the connection between buying organic and restoring the natural world.
Our point of sale packs have now all gone! Digital versions are available, and we still have some postcards, so please contact us, if you'd like some. You can also watch our webinar to hear more about the campaign.
The digital toolkit featuring web banners and digital versions of the POS materials is available to download now. There will also be social media assets added to the toolkit in the coming weeks so be sure to check back to download the latest assets.
Grow your organic sales
As the organic market grows, organic consumers are shopping more often, more ethically and more locally. There hasn’t been a better time to sell organic.
Soil Association Certification is committed to supporting continued growth in all areas of the organic market, highlighting the role that food systems can play in:
- mitigating climate change,
- halting biodiversity loss,
- improving soil fertility, and
- farming in a way that's better for animals, people and the planet.
By working in partnership with independent retailers, we can reach a wider consumer audience, build awareness of what organic is and reasons to buy organic.
We have a number of ways you can get involved, such as:
- ordering a FREE point of sale pack to help clearly communicate the benefits of organic to your customers,
- taking part in one of our Organic Learning Days,
- downloading a visual merchandising guide, or
- signing up to our Indie News e-newsletter.
Whether you're an independent retailer or run a farm shop, when you choose organic products for your shelves, you're offering your customers the chance to help change our food system for the better!
